SPECIFICS OF THE HYDROGRAPHY AND HYDROLOGICAL REGIME OF THE WESTERN CISCAUCASIA

A.A. Bazelouk, P.M. Lourie,

Basins of the Western Ciscaucasian rivers are located in the Kubano-PriAzov lowland and cover the territory stretching from the Don And Manych river valleys in the north and north-east to the Kuban River in the south. Rivers receive water due to melting waters, rainfalls and ground water. Snowmelt is the key source for replenishment. It amounts to 70-74%. Flooding due to increase of ground water level resulted from the large number of ponds and nearby are located in Krasnodar reservoir. Flooding makes it impossible to use lands for agriculture. In 2005 1100 thousand hectares of lands were flooded.
